Year after year, the thing my boys look forward to each summer is Camp Wapo.

MN Chill 2017 Rising Juniors

Delaware Trip

Another season of traveling summer lacrosse for Henry is in the books.  The goalieman had a TON of practice this past weekend with a total of 9 games played in four days. I'm happy to see that he was still smiling in this team picture.  He loves the game!

The boys are back from Colorado Springs!

After a long weekend and a 12 hour travel delay, the boys have landed back in Minneapolis!

MN Chill Purple 2017 Rising Juniors

Another weekend of LAX is officially in the books and I couldn't be more thankful to "the village" for all that they do to make it possible. From the goodie bag on Friday morning, to sending texts and pix from Colorado, to taking care of Oliver yesterday, and picking up Henry at MSP tonight today!  From the bottom of our hearts... thank you!

Hopeful for a few more pictures to share in the future, but this is all I could snag from social media today.  

Time to unload, wash the clothes and pack it all up to do again next Saturday in Delaware!  Oh, and somewhere in between, a few naps for everyone.

Summer Sizzle - Oliver LAX

Spent the weekend at the Summer Sizzle in Circle Pines with Oliver and his U15 ACYLA team.  They fought hard and played well.  The temperature and heat index were close to 100* by the time they finished up the tournament Sunday evening.

A lot of SPF, hydration and fun for boys and parents alike.

Two more games for Oliver this season (Monday and Thursday this week) before he's done with LAX for the summer.  Then it's time to hang up the stick and get the basketball ready for tryouts in the fall at the high school.

In between, he will be having surgery on his foot for OCD.  No, not that kind of OCD, this kind.  We are hopeful that the surgery will be quick and his recovery swift.  There is also marching band rehearsals that begin two weeks after surgery in August.

Please say a little prayer for this kid  - who doesn't sit still long.  We would love this surgery to completely heal his foot.  Apparently many people have this type of issue and never know it or have the pain that Oliver has had...  he's just one of the lucky who is affected by the pain, and we're hopeful this surgery will do something for his complete health healing and sports years ahead!

Until then...  two more games, Camp Wapo next week, a basketball camp the weekend following and THEN we found time to fit in his surgery.  {smile}
